Gran Reserva, 890, La Rioja Alta, 75cl
Made from some of the winery’s oldest parcels in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba, this really is one of the best ever 890s, produced in an exceptional vintage.
Blending Tempranillo with 3% Graciano and 2% Mazuelo, it combines the grace and elegance of a great Musigny with the sweetness and balance of a classic Rioja. Scented, complex and very long, it’s unashamedly traditional and all the better for that. Drinkable now but will reward further patience.
Pairs perfectly with delicate dishes with mild sauces, lamb and meat stews. It is also the ideal after-dinner drink to accompany a cigar.
Please note that it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18.
